I came to this restaurant around 5pm when it was quiet. The owner warmly welcomed me and gave a lovely introduction to the various dishes helping me decide what to have; the Sultani Joojeh with a pomegranate juice.
Being my first ever experience of Iranian/Persian cuisine I have no source for comparison however this restaurant is recommended on its authenticity and I found the food delicious. The meat beautifully came apart, the tomato sauce that came with the chicken wonderful and I enjoyed all three varieties of rice (would not have thought cinnamon worked in rice).
If you are in the Covent Garden / Leicester Square area and fancy trying something different I really recommend this restaurant. The price is more than some others in the area but I wouldn't say expensive and I was happy to pay it given the quality.

Visited the Simurgh restaurant last night, great location and nice decorations. I had the chicken & banana for the first time, it was nice and had different taste.They said the chicken & banana is a food from north of Iran!
I didn't like the taste of Kabab kobideh, I was thinking it was too fatty.
I thought it was worth a try the delicious Persian food in the central London instead of travelling to North or West of London where the most Iranian restaurant located.

Really nice, inexpensive Persian dining. Food is excellent and the menu is simple. Staff are friendly but can be a little slow with service. However, the food arrives very quickly and is very good. If you're going as a two I recommend going for the sharing platter. For £30 you get plenty of food to share and enjoy.
